I love it, it's such a nice car to drive, it's so comfortable and guess what! It wastes most Commodore V8's (including VL turbo) up to the VX.. hehehe And it's not an import, it was sold here, so I guess it's not that bad and I'm not going to rice her up either, just do her very nice!
and it's completely stock, apart from 2x K&N filters (these things have two filters, not one).
Anyway, I just wanna thank everyone on here, you made owning a Falcon a pleasure and I learnt heaps through the advice given.
I'm selling my Fairmont (it's in average condition but if your interested email me at firstname.lastname@example.org) but it's all for the best! :d
Now you may never be able to have a car which doesn;t have an open roof again, I can tell you from experience that it'll be hard for me to go back.
Just outta curiousity, how much did it set you back?
JT: looking at my old 1990's new cars buyers guide, the transmission was a $4700 option because it had to be designed from the ground up to specifically suit the car. As for replacements, if it does go bing, transmissions from Japan would be cheap as chips.
1990 Toyota MR2 SW20.
Only mods: tints, black widow alarm, panasonic mp3 headunit, 6' pioneer 3 way speakers (front), jbl 4' rears.
Next mod: A newer and better RWD Japanese convertible/sports car.
Dunno if other forum members would agree, esp. the 56k'ers, but I think it would be better if you put img tags around the links to have them load up in the thread instead of loading up dozens of windows.
